Smashbox Cosmetics has partnered with acclaimed director Sofia Coppola’s upcoming film, The Bling Ring, as the exclusive beauty brand of the much-anticipated fashion heist film. To mark its upcoming June 21 nationwide release (limited release June 14 in L.A. and New York), Smashbox will launch a two-part Smashbox The Bling Ring campaign with a limited-edition kit inspired by the film and an exclusive sweepstakes in Facebook.
Fans can channel the L.A. high-life seen in the film with the Smashbox The Bling Ring Kit, available May 21 only on Smashbox.com. The Smashbox pros developed this custom kit to re-create the fame-obsessed glamour of the film’s stars with hot pink pouts, out-all-night kohl-rimmed eyes and lashes for days.

The Bling Ring makeup artist Roz Music says she pulled most of her inspiration for the characters’ looks from real-life girls on Instagram. “I wasn’t looking for the good-girl look,” Music says. “I was purposely looking for the girls who were maybe being a little suggestive, maybe smoking something they shouldn’t be…”
And to give fans a glimpse of the celeb fantasy that The Bling Ring explores, Smashbox will give away a grand prize trip for two to the film’s premiere and after-party on June 4 in L.A., plus 25 gift bags filled with Smashbox and The Bling Ring swag at www.facebook.com/smashboxblingring.
